“[A] common phrase heard among reporters was that the `uneducated rural community’ had made a larger turnout than what was expected.”


A Facebook (and, I believe) real world friend posted the article quoted in the title to this blogpost, for which I provide the above link.

The short article includes some interesting insights about what it means to be educated, and the education of those rural people who do not have formal degrees.

I believe this is more than just semantics.

I have some relatives who have both the rural education and formal advanced degrees, others who may have the rural education but not the degrees.  Both groups know a ton that I don’t know.
